goes to france for the first time in france as they get prepared to bring home a title, this is "early" today thursday, july 14th, 2011. captioning funded by cbs >> good thursday morning to you. i'm erica hill. nice to have you with us. >> i'm chris wragge. there's been another development in britain's phone hacking scandal. a new arrest a man said to be former editor of "news of the world" as pressure groiz on rupert murdoch to testify in london and possibly washington. new development every day. television deal with bsky b looks like it's -- >> out. >> -- a thing of the past. with time going out, the
7:02 am
president abruptly walked out of wednesday's meeting according to republicans. nancy cordes joins us live from capitol hill with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, chris. it appears that patience is wearing thin in the room where the president is meeting at the white house with eight top congressional leaders. both sides accuse the other of moving the goal posts, of failing to lead and now it appears the president has had enough. they may have been all smiles at the start of the meeting but tensions flaired after house majority leader eric cantor republican from virginia repeatedly proposed a series of short term extensions of the debt limit if a larger deal proved unattainable. "i said i was willing to come off my insistence that there was one vote," cantor told reporters afterwards "so i asked the president would that be something that he would consider. well that's when he got very agitated seemingly and said that he has sat here long enough and that no other president, ronald reagan wouldn't sit here like this and that he's reached a
7:03 am
point that something's got to give." cantor said the president shoved back his chair and walked out, a description democrats and the white house dispute. when cantor tried to argue for a third time about doing a short term deal he was shut down and sat ashen faced with a lump in his throat said a democratic aide. the president finished the meeting by speaking for several minutes about how he would not be deterred in doing what is best for the country. democrats contend the two sides are actually making progress despite the acrimony. democrats still want to eliminate certain tax deductions for the wealthy while republicans want cuts equal to or greater than the $2.5 billion debt limit on the table. moody's warned it is putting american's triple "a" bond rating under review. ben bernanke warned --
7:04 am
>> there would have to be cuts in social security medicare military pay or some combination of those. >> reporter: the president and congressional leaders are going to go back at it today, sit down again and talk and the president we're told has given them until friday to try and define the contours of a larger deal f they can't reach that deal by then he has told them they need to drill down and figure out what they can achieve. >> another deadline cbs's nancy cordes thank you. joining us is cbs senior white house correspondent bill plante. what are those closest to the president saying about what happened in that room. >> reporter: good morning, the democrats familiar with the debt negotiation, as they prefer to be called around here say cantor's account is completely overblown. they say people in the room say that mr. obama told the leaders "enough's enough with delay in refusal to compromise. let's stop the postures and politicaling and catering to the
7:05 am
political base. stop compromising. he said would ronaldnot yield on this. after those exchanges or some version of them the president pushed back his chair and left the room saying "i'll see you tomorrow" but according to democrats who were in the room he did not storm out. before he left as nancy said the president told them that they've got until tomorrow friday to figure this out, or else something has to be done. now all of this drama is a huge distraction, of course in today's meeting they're supposed to talk about the possible payroll tax cut and enforcement mechanisms for cutting spending so one source says that if they can actually make a little progress on that they will be closer to a deal. chris? >> all right, cbs's bill plante at the white house this morning, thank you. here's erica. >> failure to reach a deal on raising the debt limit could greatly affect the average american. rebecca jarvis is with us with
7:06 am
more on this impact and we've heard a lot about potential impact on things like social security checks, disability in veterans disability. how credible is that threat or that risk depending on how you look at it that these checks will not go in the mail on august 3rd? >> the threat and the risk that exists here is significant if you look at how much money is available, because the amount of money available on august 3rd, if the debt limit isn't increased is less than the amount needed to cover all of the obligations of the united states government. the constitution says we have to pay our debts first. we have to make good on those in the first place, but in addition to that there are obviously obligations to senior citizens with social security, there are obligations to veterans and there are not enough money to feed everyone. there could be enough money for example to send out the 29 million social security checks but someone else would have to lose in order for social security recipients to gain. >> that's something people at home can relate to when you only
7:07 am
have a certain amount of money and doesn't cover all of your debts. as the government picks and chooses which bills it would pay there is also a trust fund isn't there, for social security? >> there is this $2.6 trillion trust fund that we're often told about where social security is safe it's in this lock box. the reality is that lock box contains debt. it contains treasuries and those treasuries have to be converted to cash. it's not just cash that they can take out so the issue is you don't just go in and dip into that lock box and take the money out and pay social security recipients. there are also those who believe some critics believe there is no actual treasuries in that lock box either. >> meaning? >> meaning that the obligation that the government says it has on hand doesn't actually exist, that they don't have the capital to fulfill it. however there is disagreement over that point, big disagreement over that point. >> the other thing we'll be looking at is of course whether or not there will be issue with the credit rating.
7:08 am
we'll talk about that. rebecca thanks. chris? >> thank you. there is news of another arrest in the widening phone hacking scandal in britain. rupert murdoch is being pressured to appear before lawmakers in london and washington. dana lewis is in london good morning. >> reporter: good morning, we're hearing a ninth person has been arrested in the phone hacking scandal, the former executive editor of the "news of the world," but the late breaking news here this morning is the british government committee has just issued a summons for rupert and james murdoch to appear before them to answer questions about what they knew in the phone hacking scandal but legally there is a serious question over whether they can be compelled to appear. damage control in high gear rupert murdoch and son james in london trying to find a way to put out the fire. news corp shut out "nut of the world" withdrawn the bid for
7:09 am
bskyb television but the scandal won't go away. politicians aimed to get murdoch and rebekah brooks to appear before parliamentary committee which recently grilled senior police officials over the "news of the world" phone hacking controversy. david cameron told parliament "if you own media in this country you should be able to called under oath. "former prime minister gordon brown joined the chorus of angry parliamentary railing. >> from the gutter to the sewers, the tragedy, mr. speaker, is that they let the rats out of the sewers. >> and there are questions for murdoch to answer in the u.s. a growing number of senators are calling for news corp withholdings who include fox news and the "wall street journal" to determine if american laws were broken there are reports that news corp tried
7:10 am
to hack into the phones of the victims of 9/11. >> news corp asked into the enters of a book by piers morgan. >> he was a long time employee of murdoch's "news of the world" and "the daily mirror" which is also investigated about phone hacks, he wrote about the practice of phone hacking in his memoirs published in 2005 and politicians are suggesting he should appear and tell them what he knew. >> dana lewis, thanks good to talk with you. like we mentioned each and every day new development. >> i don't think we're done yet. that's going to continue. >> there is so much more yet to be uncovered. >> before we get to the inquiries as they say. jeff glor with the other headlines. >> good morning to you and everyone at home. in afghanistan a suicide bomber attacked a memorial

7:12 am
yesterday afternoon and through the evening though the rebel forces came back and have driven the gadhafi forces about four miles or so down the road that way. one difference today is you can't hear it right now but a few minutes ago the sound of jets in the air presumably nato air cover. this is the fringe of the area that the rebels control, about 100 mile strip that runs from here back toward the tunisian border. the issue for them now is whether to push forward to the town of geryan a major crossroads which would open up the route to tripoli. the real question though is whether these guys are prepared to make that kind of move and the indications now in terms of weapons and control and tactics is that they aren't. mark phillips cbs news in qualesh, libya. the story that horrified parents in new york but around

>> reporter: sarah palin has been watching this from the side lines but last night she told fox's sean hannity she'll make a decision by august. >> i would offer myself in the name of service knowing confidently that i have those common sense fiscally conservative pro private sector policy experience and ideas that can be put to good work for this country. >> reporter: now if palin were to get in that obviously could really slow down bachmann's rise. if palin gets in erica that could change in i'm not talking about moving pieces around on the chess board, that would turn the chess board completely upside down. we'll know soon enough. >> yes we will. we bring in cbs news political analyst john dickerson. good to have you with us this morning. quickly when it comes to sarah palin she said she's going to say something soon, probably august. do you think she's made up her mind at this point? >> it's hard to know with sarah palin. we have the periodic moments
7:36 am
where she disappears for a little while and comes back on the scene. she's on the cover of "newsweek" magazine. she's hinting and flirting seems like she's reasserting herself in the moment when michele bachmann is on the rise and in the debt negotiations so she looks like she's doing something. >> michelle bamichellebachmann is in the race, seeing a rise in iowa. what is giving her this momentum, john? >> we always knew there would be two primaries in the republican primary, in the establishment, mitt romney is ahead and the anti-romney candidate, somebody else who represents the kind of core conservatives, the movement conservatives and that's the group that michele bachmann is at the head of and speaks for so she is rising up in that group, they like what she's saying. they used to say you can't run
7:37 am
as a politician from washington but she's using that as her strength. she's saying i'm in washington fighting the establishment and that's working well for her. >> jan, rick perry could decide by labor day whether or not he's jumping in. what is he waiting on? >> he's waiting on the end of the legislative session, now had minor back surgery and also going to see how things play out the rest of the month going into that straw poll in iowa in the middle of august but my sources say that he is going to get in this race obviously that will have a huge impact on bachmann and other people who as john says are trying to be that alternative to mitt romney so he would really shake things up if he gets in. it will be interesting to see what voters say about the candidates. when i was in iowa and here's what's remarkable about michele bachmann. over and over and over people said to me she's so genuine, she's so real. there's something about her that comes across as this authentic, real person and voters really feel like they can relate to
7:38 am
that. she speaks for them. >> so john how would that translate on a national level? >> well this is the challenge for michele bachmann is that awe authenticity in iowa key state for her, born there that translates well for her in her constituent but in other states she needs to find a way to be authentic and support a specific portion of the party but show she can play on the national level. is she a contender? how would she look against barack obama, how do people see her in the oval office. at the moment she's a force but the question is is she is a contender. >> and with rick perry perhaps jumping in could shake things up. anybody else that either one of you have heard of who may be jumping in besides palin and perry at this point? >> erica everyone's been throwing out names for mud because people think the field is rather week. we're seeing bachmann picking up steam, hints that perry is going to get in the field is looking
7:39 am
settled. you hear things maybe new jersey governor chris christie is going to get in even though he's said 1,000 times he's not. john, what do you think? >> nobody else is out there, and even perry or palin, the challenge is getting in late is not easy. this is a difficult thing to run for president and it's a long hard slog and so these supercandidates who might sweep in out of the wings it ain't going to be so easy for them. >> thank you both. just ahead the u.s. soccer team on the quest for a second world cup championship. we're cheering them on all the way. you're watching "the early show" on cbs.

8:02 am
democrats say that he simply took a firm stand. after the photo opp was over the smiles apparently dropped and the debate heated up. house minority leader eric cantor contends it ended with a veiled threat. "i said i was willing to come off my insistence that if there was one vote so i asked the president would that be something that he would consider. well that's when he got very agitated seemingly and said that he has sat there long enough and that no other president, ronald reagan wouldn't sit here like this and he's reached a point that something's got to give. eric don't call my bluff, i'm going to the american people with this." with that cantor says the president abruptly ended the meeting by shoving back his chair and storming out of the room. the white house disputes that account. it insists that mr. obama left on much better terms simply saying "enough's enough i'll see you tomorrow."

8:14 am
when many of us were growing up there was always one on the premises. with the budget cutbacks that's no longer the case. one family says that's what led to their tragedy as priya david clemens reports. >> reporter: in tacoma washington, 10-year-old mercedes mears took the bus with her cysters. >> she left the school 8:05 8:06 in the morning she was fine. the next thing i knew i got a phone call mercedes had an asthma attack. we called the emts. >> reporter: the family says even though the school had a plan of action and an epipen in case of an emergency, mercedes didn't get her medication or even cpr. school officials did call an ambulance but it was too late. mercedes died in a hospital that morning. >> no cpr, no care plan nothing. >> reporter: there were only 11 full time nurses to cover more
8:15 am
than 18,000 students in the bethel school district. this isn't just a problem in washington state. nationwide there's no standard for school health care. >> if you live in vermont, one school nurse for 300 students, if you live in michigan, one school nurse to just under 5,000 students. so there is a great range of what children are receiving in the united states for school health services. >> reporter: and as schools suffer budget cuts school nurses are becoming scarce. >> it's not the shortage of nurses. it's a shortage of funded positions. school districts need to make that a priority need to have a funded position available for a school nurse to be in the building. >> reporter: mercedes school acknowledges they could use more funding and more help. >> certainly i think every school district could use more nurses. oftentimes a matter of funding and finding personnel to staff those positions. >> reporter: jeannette mears says the lack of the school nurse not only contributed to
8:16 am
her daughter's death but killed the heartbeat of her family. >> the damage is done it's done and i don't see it as being repairable. >> reporter: priya david clemens, cbs news tacoma washington. >> the mears family filed a lawsuit against the district seeking $15 million in damages. joining us from washington amy garcia of the american nurses association. good morning to you. good to have you with us. >> good morning to you. >> we see a case like mercedes mears. on a national scale how often are we seeing cases like this happening with the shortage of nurses in schools? >> it happens way too often. parents should be able to send their child to school and know they'll come home unharmed or actually come home and on a shortage of nurses i would say that in schools, it's a shortage of funded positions for nurses. there's typically not a problem filling them when there is a funded position. >> so this is basically you're
8:17 am
saying the school districts need to appropriate more funds so you can have nurses on hand at the school. i just want to throw one number out there. as of 2010 more than 50% of public schools across the u.s. do not have a full time registered nurse 25% of schools have no nurse at all. you think it's a financial thing, why isn't it getting more attention? why are school districts not doing more? >> you know what's fascinating to me is that parents in vermont have prioritized this and parents in other places have not necessarily raised their voices. the state of washington where mercedes and her family lived, there was one nurse per roughly 2,031 kids. it's just egregious, and parents should be asking is there a nurse in my school? will there be somebody to take care, because what happens is schools say well it's not a big deal, our school secretary or a
8:18 am
paraeducator can do this but there is value in actually being a registered nurse, because registered nurses know how to assess the kids plan for their care, how to treat and how to respond to an emergency. >> aim yeamy garcia thank you for your time. we appreciate you speaking to us this morning. carmageddon, what it is and how we're reacting to it. zbl>> visit fiber to learn more. to stay healthy. but did you know fiber choice can help support your overall well-being? every tasty tablet has prebiotic fiber from fruits and veggies... that lets your good bacteria thrive and helps support your immune system. fiber choice. an easy way to defend your
